I wanted a holiday but my husband does not enjoy travelling and I found this year I was on my own! After trawling websites I chose a company called Friendship Travel and chose to go for a week to Lindos Memories hotel in Rhodes, Greece. The company were most helpful with all aspects of the booking and I was able to use a chat room to make acquaintance with other people in my position. I arrived in Rhodes airport to be met by the rep , she was waiting for me and I did not have to look fo her she seemed to know exactly who she was looking for – a taxi was waitiing for me and I was taken to the hotel which was wonderful. A rep was waiting for me at the hotel, even though it was late I was given a buffet tray and wine in my room. Great. The hotel was fantastic, staff were friendly and helpful. There was a rep available at breakfast and evening meal. The only stipulation was that all the Friendship guests had evening meal together – which was great because then you had company for the evening, through the day you could do exactly as you wanted – company was there if you wanted it but if not you could do your own thing., I was extremely pleased to find that the people I met were mainly like me – not looking for a 'partner' but just wanting to enjoy a holiday and relax. I thoroghly enjoyed my holiday and would not hesitate to use this company again. It wasnt cheap butt worth paying the extra!

    This is the kind of comment I was hoping to find. I find myself alone and don't want holiday with friends as I feel like I'm imposing, they say I'm not but I like to be independent. This is the holiday that really interests me but having never travelled alone before I'm a little wary. I think I'll give this a go.
    Thanks for your comments, you have given me courage.

    Oops, I meant Caesar's Gardens Lindos.

    I am a single traveller and went to Turkey last year with Friendship Travel and I have booked to go to Lindos in October this year, though staying in the smaller Caesar's Palace hotel. They are a very friendly holiday company and I can't fault them!

    How lucky you were to stay in beautiful Lindos, with it's picturesque white houses and overlooked by the ancient Acropolis. It must have been a wonderful place for a holiday base and so central for exploring the rest of the amazing Island of Rhodes. I have been fortunate enough to go to Rhodes three times, staying once in Rhodes Town, which was busy and bustling, and twice in Hiraki which was the exact opposite and very sleepy and laid back. I would imagine that Lindos is somewhere in the middle, with lots of tourists seeing the Acropolis during the day but much quieter towards evening. Well done for not being put off of travelling because your husband did not want to go. I'm fortunate that my husband does love travelling and I'm not sure that I would have had the courage to go solo. I'm sure your bravery was well rewarded with a wonderful holiday and some beautiful memories.
